GrowNYC's Stop N' Swap Today!

Have you been doing your spring cleaning and have bags or boxes of things to get rid of that are still usable?
Donating your good used items is a great way to reuse and recycle.  If you live in NYC, GrowNYC offers a great way to donate your goods and even swap up other used items that you can reuse!

Community "swaps" provide the perfect opportunity to find new homes for things you no longer need. By taking home items that you can use, you are also helping to prevent waste from production, packaging and transportation required to get new things.
When: Sunday, April 3, 11am-2pm

Where: Columbia University - Butler Walkway (rain or shine)
Enter campus at 116th Street & Broadway 

Directions via Subway: 1 to 116th St (best route) or b/c to Cathedral Parkway/110th St (walk down 110th and then up Broadway or Amsterdam to avoid a difficult walk through Morningside Park).

This is a free event - just bring your used items and a bag or two to bring home anything you might find!
